Join our national campaigns

FPH is calling on all members to join us in working with the new Government to ensure that the public’s health remains at the heart of national policy making

This Parliament will preside over a period of great transformation, with repercussions that will extend far beyond its five year term. It is vital that this Government always acts in the best interest of the public’s health, which means that parliamentarians need to regularly engage in meaningful dialogue with the public health workforce.

To that end, we’ve already shared FPH’s 3 core priorities for the future with parliamentarians and their advisers.  Now we need your help to deliver the message in your local area to your new or re-elected MP. You can use the resources listed below to help you get started and please don’t hesitate to get in touch (policy@fph.org.uk) should you require any additional support or have any questions.

 Resources for contacting your MP

1Briefing for members on how to engage with their MP. In this briefing we give you tips for getting in contact with your MP, including what you should ask and how you should do it.

2. Template letter to your MP. Adapt our sample letter for getting in touch with your MP.

3. Fit for our children’s future.  In this briefing we outline the 3 main issues that the next Government needs to engage with: realising Brexit’s ‘health dividend,’ shoring up public health funding, and making sure the specialist workforce in public health is adequately staffed and supported.
